Colt Brennan and Drew Willy Sign Contracts With CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders


Colt Brennan, who – with the help of June Jones and the Hawai’i receivers – put Warrior football on the map and made mincemeat of WAC defenses in a record-breaking run, has signed a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Brennan’s playing style irked then Redskins head coach Jim Zorn, and the Riders will likely have to have a season similar to 2011 for him to see significant playing time (though the CFL is less stringent on sticking with 1 QB). That said, it will be interesting, as Colt is comfortable in the wide-open, pass first, 3-down CFL format.

Hawai’i’s receiving corps from Brennan’s time includes Ryan Grice-Mullen of the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos, Mike Washington of the AFL’s Pittsburgh Power, and Davone Bess of the Miami Dolphins, who was 5th in the NFL last season with an 11.9 average.

Another quarterback whose signing was announced today by the Roughriders was Drew Willy, who has spent time with the Ravens, Colts, Jets and Chargers since going undrafted in 2009.

The Roughriders’ top quarterback is still likely Darian Durant. The Roughriders were the losingest team in the league last year at 5-13.

    Just another league for him to fail and embarrass himself in. Give it up Colt, you’ve embarrassed us in the UH enough.

    I thought this was NFL GRIDIRON GAB, not “NFL washout nobodies that nobody associated with the NFL cares about” gab. Glad to hear that Colt guy is ok though after his accident but the dude sucks. Now, back to sports news.

    That Sugar Bowl revealed all anyone needed to know about Colt Brennan. That UH season was meaningless due to that blowout. The NFL saw all they had to see that’s why he feel so far and was never taken seriously. So who cares about Colt. I’m more excited for Drew Willy who has a legit shot to be Durant’s backup!
